Discount stores

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just visited one of those discount stores, this one by the name of TJMaxx. While there was a lot of lower end and urban style clothing there, I did manage to find several items by reutable designers. A few pairs of Boss pants, a few French Connection and Joseph Abbound items here and there, and even a polo shirt by Ralph Lauren Puple Label. Everything was discounted somewhere in the area of 60-75%, but I did have to search through a number of racks to find what I was looking for. But if you have the time to hunt through it all, there are some treasures. The RLPL polo still had the original tag for $125 on it, I took it home for $30. Just a heads up to my fellow forum members . Kevin

so are you 5' tall, 225 lb or 6'5", 120 lb? I see purple label and boss stuff at TJ Maxx all the time, but I'll never find a nice item that fits me. I also gave up on pants there when I realized they didn't have any flat fronts, but at least they're a good place to look for socks, undershirts, and the like. Still, TJ Maxx is better above than all the endless crap I saw when I toured my local mega outlet mall... even the Off 5th didn't have one item that could be found in better quality and at a better price at any old department store. Oh well, maybe I should start hitting up thrift shops and sticking with ebay.

Quite the contrary, I am pretty much the everyday gentleman.  6'2" athletic build.  The Boss pants I purchased were in fact flat front, and there seemed to be a decent selection of styles as far as the pants go.  As for the shirts, I only browsed the large section, and was surprised at what I found.  Perhaps I was just lucky to stop in after they recieved a shipment, but overall, I was pleased with what I managed to uncover.  I have never been one to shop the thrift stores (just something about the idea of wearing someone else's clothes), but ebay can be reliable depending on what labels you shop. Best of luck with your future shopping. Kevin

I hear you. The Marshalls where I live carries Corneliani and Boss suits.

It totally depends on the week and area you go. I live in Denver, and if I go to one of those stores in the city, I find that they carry a weak selection. But If I venture to the stores in the outer suburbs, they actually have a good amount of clothes that I wouls actually drop some $$ on. I finally made it to Off5th (thanks to Steve, which by the way wheres my book?) and they had some great buys.

Buddah: Your book is in the same place mine is- still grinding through the process of independent publishing. But I'm getting there- should still have them ready in plenty of time for the Holidays.
